 The Nagaland Bamboo Development Agency has been instrumental over a decade in promoting bamboo from two perspectives, namely resource and enterprise development. The Agency has been actively involved in promoting livelihood through empowerment of farmers, skilling of artisans and capacity building of entrepreneurs. The journey so far has been positive and now the Agency is actively looking at diversifying bamboo products and increasing the output on a global scale. Starting from this year, the Agency has embarked on its initiative to collaborate with Taiwan for technology transfer and capacity building and develop an India-Taiwan Bamboo Technical Centre in India through this cooperation.

At the outset, I am very glad to know that the whole world will be celebrating the 10th World Bamboo Day on 18th September 2019 with theme ‘Bamboo For Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of United Nations’. It is a matter of joy and pride that the World Bamboo Day was founded by our friend and associate Mr. Kamesh Salam, Former President of World Bamboo Organization. To commemorate this auspicious occasion, the NBDA will be releasing its official magazine and undertaking a plantation drive at the Nagaland Bamboo Resource Center, Dimapur.

We, at the Nagaland Bamboo Development Agency (NBDA), are committed to promote bamboo to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals with bamboo as key tool for change.  At the call of our Hon’ble Prime Minister, ShriNarendraModi, to ban Single Use Plastic, as the name suggests, single-use plastics (SUPs) are used only once before they are thrown away or recycled which includes plastic bags, cups, plates, aerated drinks’ bottles, straws, stirrers, take-away food containers, processed food packers and wrappers. Of these, foamed products such as disposable cutlery, plates and glasses are considered the most dangerous to the environment.  NBDA is working towards promoting bamboo products as alternatives to single-use plastics. We are exploring international collaborations and technical partnerships to make it a success within a short time. 

NBDA will also collaborate with the people working at UN, WBO, INBAR, NGOs and other international, national and local organizations who are dedicated in promoting  bamboo as sustainable resource.

I wish everyone a happy World Bamboo Day!
